The latest medical research clearly confirms that the glycemic index (GI)—an easy-to-understand ranking of foods based on their effect on blood glucose levels—is vitally important for heart health and the prevention of the Metabolic Syndrome (aka Syndrome X and insulin resistance). Slowly digested, low-GI carbohydrates like pasta, grainy breads, and cereals based on wheat bran and oats play an important role in treating and preventing heart disease—in addition to controlling blood sugar and aiding weight loss. This handy pocket guide shows readers how to choose the right amount of the right carbohydrates for reducing the risk of heart attack and for lifelong health and well-being. Included is a 7-day, low-fat, low-GI meal plan for heart health, a healthy-heart pantry checklist, and the glycemic index values, fat, and carbohydrate content for over 300 foods and drinks.
